Never plant this before because never tried this in any food.  Recently tried Vietnamese pho and really please with the combination with this with lime juice in beef soup!  What a genus way to combine these 3 things together!   Annual herb.  Easy to grow.  Best growing in full sun to partial shade location.   Purple flowers in summer to fall.  Flowers attract bees and butterflies.  Whole plant is fragrant with basil with cinnamon scent.  Mature size:2′-3′(H) X 1.5′-2′(W).  Propagate by seeds or cuttings.

以前不曾種過這種也不曾用過.  最近試過越南菜,相當喜歡它和青檸在牛肉湯裡的味道!  這三種味道都是濃郁的沒有想到融合之後是如此不違和和相得益彰! 原產於墨西哥,其老莖與花萼呈紫紅色,花為紫色.  它是一年生的香草植物. 容易栽種.  最好栽種在全日照到半日照處.  紫萼紫花於夏天開到秋天.  花頗吸引蜂蝶.  全株帶有肉桂香的羅勒香氣.  成熟株高2-3呎,寬幅1.5-2呎.  繁殖以種子或扦插的方式來進行.

Tender perennial flowering vine.  Whole plant is medicinal and edible.  Leaves can be harvested and cooked as leafy vegetable or as I remembered to chop the leaves and mix with eggs to make omelet.  It is very common used to give a boost for kids or young adults to grow taller.  Also could dry the harvested leaves then blend the dried leaves into powder for storage, when use the powder can mix with rice flour to make dumpling kind of food.  It is a fast growing vine so in some warm countries not eating them will be considered as invasive weed.  The whole plant has an strong scent/odour some people really dislike it hence the common name.

Best grow in full sun to partial shade loction.   Small bell shape, white flowers with magenta inner flower colour in large amount in summer.  Yellow-orange ripe fruit in fall, inside of its fruit with dark seeds. USDA Zones:6-11.   Mature size:20′(L/H) . Self-seed.  Propagate by seeds, cuttings or dividing plants.

多年生草花爬藤.  不甚耐寒.  全草具有藥用及食用價值. 葉片可採來如葉菜類煮食,或切碎後炒蛋吃. 老一輩的人說給小孩吃能幫助長高.   根切小段後燉煮粉腸可以治頑強咳嗽.    中國南方通常藉由乾燥葉片後搗成粉狀來貯存或和麵包餡做成粿或餃或丸形來吃.  由於它生長快速,在某些不吃它的溫暖國家被視為強勢的雜草.  全株有濃濃特殊的味道,有些人很不喜歡所以有臭藤的別名.  易於栽種,不耐寒.  開小花如小鈴鐺,外白內紅,數量多.  果熟呈橘黃色,外有薄硬殼,內有種子1-2枚.  種子約播下後5-7天內發芽.  繁殖以種子,壓條,扦插或分株.  它算是兼具食用與藥用的路邊野草!  非常容易栽種在全日照到半日照處.  夏天開花,秋結橘黃色果實,果實內種子黑色.  容易結子.  成熟藤高/長20呎.
